Wizard Tournament in Logue Library until 11/3/19!

It's National Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

Data Breaches, Malware, Secure Passwords, Privacy, Safe Computing, Online Scams, Mobile Protection, Hacking, Phishing, Identify Theft and Bitcoin.  These are some topics discussed in the area of Cyber security.  So in this blog, we are going to discuss National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) which is held every October.  

NCSAM 2019 Toolkit can be downloaded  is  from Homeland Security.

Posters for NCSAM are also available to download as well.

According to the Homeland Security Website this annual event, “is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safe and secure online while increasing the resilience of the Nation against cyber threats. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) co-lead NCSAM.”  The Theme for 2019 is, "Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT."

Much about how content is viewed or accessed over the Internet has changed. In fact Forbes.com wrote an article in December of 2018 called, "60 Cybersecurity Predictions For 2019."  

One of the predictions in this article discussed employment and educational factors, stating that, “It’s no surprise that we are currently in a massive deficit of qualified cybersecurity talent. In 2019, we will see a more modern approach to recruiting and retention in the cybersecurity workforce to fill this void and create more diversity. We will see an uptick in apprenticeship programs, more diverse training, recruiting practices and federal funding to help bridge the enormous talent and diversity gap the industry has today“—Jason Albuquerque, CISO, Carousel Industries

Chestnut Hill College's "High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA) Student Chapter is involved in Cybersecurity.  They are hosting their 5th Annual Cyber Security and Forensics Conference on Friday, October 25, 2019.  This event is Co-sponsored with HTCIA,  Delaware Valley Chapter

Logue Library's Harry Potter Display is Awesome! come Check it Out!

Our Harry Potter Display looks great in Logue Library!  Getting ready for Chestnut Hill College's annual "Harry Potter Weekend." 
A schedule of events is shown below.

Stop into the library to see our display created by our Librarian, Kelly Liberona.  When asked why she chose to create this display she stated that,"
I’ve loved Harry Potter since age 8 when the story had first begun back in 1998. It really encouraged my love of reading. I got to grow up with the books as they were published. It’s such a great tale of good vs. evil, friendship, and love.
As you can imagine, I love working at the “Harry Potter school” where the similarities between Chestnut Hill College and Hogwarts are celebrated and explored. CHC has the same warm and welcoming feeling you get when you read about Hogwarts (or watch it in the movies). Chestnut Hill College [Hogwarts] truly is home for us Harry Potter lovers.  I wanted to give the library a bit of a magical feeling, so I strung the “floating” candles like the lobby is Hogwart’s Great Hall and culled my yard for the perfect sticks to create a realistic broomstick. The broom levitates mid-air as a tribute to our Quidditch Team.  Happy Harry Potter Weekend!"

Now, let's talk about the Logue Library.....
